  • Install phpmyadmin for the ease of viewing DB tables (not mandatory). Select apache2 server

  • To make sure that the installation is complete, access database through web browser. Type IP address of the board/raspberry pi in the web browser. For instance
  • If phpmyadmin is not accessible, run the command below

$ dbkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin

Step 3: Setup database tables for SMG2.0:

  • Login to phpmyadmin, using the password created during mysql installation.
